The project is to create 200 multiple-choice items on different topics in algebra. This is a pilot project to evaluate contractor capability and if successfully completed, may lead to ongoing work of a similar nature on a larger scale. The budget for this project is US$200.
Sample questions are available in the book "Elementary Algebra" by Denny Burzynski and Wade Ellis, Jr. This book is licensed for re-use under Creative Commons CC-BY-3.0. It is available at the following link:

The contractor will create 200 multiple-choice items, distributed as 20 questions on each of 10 topics. The topics correspond to chapters in the reference book. In this project the items used should correspond to the more difficult ones in each chapter in the book.
The contractor can use the questions in the reference book, or create original questions of the same level. Note that the questions at the link are not multiple-choice, so the contractor will have to come up with plausible distractors.
That is the contractor will have to work out the solution, introduce mistakes and then work out the erroneous result and enter it as a distractor. Thus prior experience in generating multiple-choice questions with good quality distractors is important. The contractor will have to provide a brief rationale for the distractors.
The contractor will not have to provide a detailed step-by-step solution in this project. In future projects the contractor may be required to provide hints or solution step details.
The questions have to be entered into an online system, details of which will be provided to the successful contractor. The contractor should be familiar with typesetting mathematical notation in Web pages using AsciiMath and/or Latex.
We expect that questions will require 10 - 30 min/per question including working out solution, generating distractors, and entering into the system, for a contractor who is proficient in algebra and in mathematics typesetting using AsciiMath/Latex.

Other details required in bid
Please provide details of prior experience in setting mathematics test items, and samples of 3 questions created from the reference book as described above, using AsciiMath/Latex, with a brief rationale for the distractors that you have created.
